I HAVE NO LEO TO COMPILE AND TEST!
In Tiger all works.
Is there anybody have XCode 3.0 under Leo 10.5.3?

Try v308 made by Dmdimon
EDITED:
It is new version of USBEHCI made by orByte's method but with Apple sources from Leo 10.5.2

hm cannot figure how what you quoted from me has any relation to your question .. - neither do I know what exactly you mean by "fix" ..

I did as explained a thousand times in this thread:

- using stock apple IOUSBFamily.kext (Leo current: 3.0.8)
- inside of it deleted Apple's AppleUSBEHCI.kext
- inserted orByte's PCGenUSBEHCI.kext (chwn/ chmod ..)
- touched XT folder
--> happy, USB 2.0 incl. booting from USB

When testing kernels via boot.plist without matching system.keyt hotplug does (CAN) not work (as also has been mentioned many times here), therefore my previous link to the hotplug fixer.

So summarized: yes, having followed the rules and lil tricks when needed, PCGenUSBEHCI.kext still seems 2 b working 100% here.

However I would not mind testing a compile of the most current sources since obviously Apple tweaked "something". Maybe higher transfer speed? Dunno ..

How 'bout u?

Thanks bugsBunny for explaining the things again !

What are the most problems / reasons why users must/want to use this USB parts ?
1- " ON REBOOT/RESET one gets: CODE USBF: 20.136 EHCI controller unable to take control from BIOS"
Does USB work (only message in system.log) or will not work / make much trouble ?
Other problems , like timing, USB HUB Problems, ... can get fixed ?

My USB is running well (i think :( ) , but some friends will switch to OSX86 soon, thats the reason why i asks,
at which problems i should give them hint to use that "tuned" kexts.

kexts? PCGenUSBEHCI.kext is only one kext.

One needs to check in Sys profiler if one has USB 2.0, or not, with or without PCGenUSBEHCI.kext ..

Also it does not do harm to do a lil time & speed test (copy a larger file from and to an USB Volume in Mac OS and in Win or Linux with guaranteed USB 2.0 support and compare.

And what?
You ask me for a new version? It is at my post 429. No any attempt to check.
It is a new version of PCGenUSBEHCI.kext but with old name AppleUSBEHCI.kext.
Or you simply don't need it?

:P so you compiled the sources in Tiger with XCode Tiger I guess? Nice, that should work, there is some people that compile kexts in Tiger for Leo, seems to work sometimes.

Oh yes, I will test them, thanks :wacko:

OK,

I am using iATKOS leopard without any updates, and my USB does not work at all.

I don't have time to read this entire thread, but can somebody tell me and/or provide a link to a kext or patch to get my usb working? I installed the iousbfamily.kext from a wiki I read to get it working with no success, and legacy has been disabled in my BIOS. The machine itself is a Gateway MT6705, Intel Pentium dual-core with unpatched/upgraded iATKOS leopard.

Can somebody please help?

@ chief Slice: you can tell other man from white man that other man did great job (for which white man kinda loves other man)

@ anthony_c: you find IOUSBFamily 3.0.8/ Mac OS 10.5.2 (containing the plugins compiled by ARMAGEDDON Slice posted here) attached.
3.0.8 is the latest for Mac OS 10.5.2/3/4.

As always, install with kext helper or ~pcwiz' Mac OSx86 Tools Utility.

@ anthony_c: you find IOUSBFamily 3.0.8 from 10.5.2 recompiled (based on what slice posted) attached. 3.0.8 is the latest for Mac OS 10.5.2/3/4. Install it with kext helper or ~pcwiz' Mac OSx86 Tools Utility.


Thank you, I'll give it a try and let you know after a reboot!
